IV Sedation in Brunswick

woman listening to dental assistant Whether you’re getting dental implants or need to have your wisdom teeth or a single tooth removed, you want to be as comfortable as possible. One way we offer our patients a comfortable experience is through Intravenous (IV) sedation as a pain management option.

Also known as “twilight sedation,” IV sedation is an anaesthesia that creates a state of deep relaxation and limited awareness during dental procedures such as implant placement and root canal treatment. This pain management solution is ideal for patients who experience dental anxiety or fear and allows them to undergo necessary treatment in a secure and comfortable manner.


How Does It Work?

IV sedation is administered via a small needle, typically located in your arm or hand. The sedative medication directly enters your bloodstream, resulting in rapid and controlled sedation. Depending on the dosage and medication used, the level of sedation could be minimal or moderate, even deep.

You’re in Capable Hands

During the procedure, you’re closely monitored by our highly skilled and experienced team, including a dentist, oral surgeon or anaesthesiologist. Your heart rate, blood pressure, oxygen saturation and breathing are constantly monitored to ensure your security and comfort.

Post-Procedure Recovery

Once your procedure is over, our dedicated team continues to monitor you as you recover from the sedation effects. While the sedative effects tend to wear off quickly, it’s important for you to have a responsible adult accompany you home and avoid driving or operating heavy machinery until you’re fully recovered.
